A surprisingly fluffy two fingers of light tan head sits on top of a murky brownish red body. Nose is amazing like crisp suger glazed perfectly ripe cherries. Wow! is what comes to mind with first sip. An interesting combination of cherry pie filling, fruit wine and malt liquer. It is just bursting with juicey cherries and even a hint of raspberry. A hint of tartness balances out all the sweetness nicely. Mouthfeel is lush and you really cant stop drinking, so split the bottle or drinkability would suggest maybe you keep it all to yourself. I would love to see how this beer blends with a good smooth porter. So many possibilities with this one.

Thanks to waltonc for this one. He opened up as a dessert beer on Thanksgiving and shared the wealth amongst several friends. It was made even better by this being the best fruit beer I've ever had by far.

A: A darker rose (the wine, not the flower), with a bubbly effervescence and small tannish head

S: Cherry, with a big dose of caramel malt. The cherry is definitely the highlight here. Totally reminds me of the cherries in wine and throughout Door County, where my grandparents lived for years and cherry country of Wisconsin. Just awesome.

T/M: Everything on the smell, with a nice refreshing spritzer-like mouthfeel. Too many fruit beers are heavy and cloyingly sweet. This was the exact opposite. Clean, fruity, refreshing.

D: Exceptionally drinkable. It only gets dinged by the fact that it's difficult to be had.

Overall, a truly awesome beer that I'm glad to have had the opportunity to try.
